Ukranian baritone Andrei Kymach won the prestigious BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition in 2019 and we are delighted that he is to perform at this year’s Festival in a rare UK appearance.

Andrei graduated from the Bolshoi Young Artist Program in 2018. Within his tenure, he made his role debut as Don Carlos in Dargomyzhsky’s The Stone Guest at the Bolshoi Theatre. Since then he has gone on to appear at Opera de Nice, Opera de Toulon and a concert with the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo, and London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.
